Original photo from the family of (Jack) John Henry HUTCHINS 1926-78 s/o of John Gordon HUTCHINS 1894-1960 and Sarah Myrtle COMMONS 1896-1972. My copy has come via Graeme MARTIN, their grandson and a nephew of Jack.
Beth BAILEY, grand daughter of Ernest HUTCHINS and Catherine (nee GARRETT), also has a copy of this photo "which was enlarged from the original found in the attic of the farmhouse where Earnest Roberts and his wife Catherine lived with their family at Springmount near Creswick. As the old house was being demolished the photo was discovered. The family story handed down over time indicated that on the way to the photographer in Ballarat, their carriage overturned and the 'boys' had to haul it out of the ditch. If you look closely their shoes are dirty!" Beth has kindly provided the correct identities of the people shown.
